Friday Message from Dr. Ryan Glaze, Superintendent
This week brought a lot of excitement and much to celebrate. This is Public Schools Week and National FFA Week. TCSC joined schools across the nation to share the importance and value of our nation’s public schools, our students, and the many school professionals who work to help students achieve their highest potential.
Public schools thrive on local engagement and partnerships that help make our schools and
communities stronger. They are the key to ensuring the future remains bright for the 90% of children who attend public schools across the nation. Our community has enjoyed the benefits of a strong public school for well over a century. At the same time our corporation has enjoyed strong and committed partnerships which have enriched our curriculum and contributed to our student’s overall learning, skills, and success beyond graduation.
We invite you to celebrate the many opportunities afforded through our local public schools and engage in activities that will help strengthen the business-school connection every day. We welcome and encourage our families and community to be actively engaged in education at TCSC and stay connected via our website, Facebook, and Twitter. Your continued investment and support of TCSC make a difference in the educational experience for TCSC students today and tomorrow.
Our FFA Chapter is among the more than 8,600 chapters across the country with a combined membership of some 700,000 students and one of the largest youth organizations in the nation. The program, more than eight decades strong and growing, takes this week to each year to highlight this historic chapter’s long legacy of helping students develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education all year long.
Tipton County has been downgraded to the Yellow color advisory on the COVID-19 map and is under the Yellow guidelines. With the rate of the decline in positivity, hospitalizations, and new cases, we are able to proceed with transitioning middle and high school students to in-person instruction five days a week beginning March 12. Transition details have been shared with parents (middle and high school) and we are optimistic that we can finish the spring quarter in our traditional schedule format, Monday through Friday, K-12.
Returning to our in-person classrooms is a testament to the hard work, resiliency, and
dedication of students, families and community who have gone above and beyond to help us get our buildings open and kids back in school. With that said, we do not want to become
complacent as this health pandemic remains a very real part of our daily lives.
Speaking of hard work and resiliency, THS athletics has proven to be a powerhouse of talent this year taking its game to the state level competition in the pool and on the court. Swimmer Ayden Stanley made Blue Devil history by becoming the first boys sectional champion and the first THS swimmer to qualify to compete at state (first place in the 50-yard freestyle and a qualifying time in the 100-yard butterfly). Our girls’ basketball team also made history winning the IHSAA 2A semi-state game. Both Ayden and the Lady Blue Devils basketball team have their sights set on bringing home a state championship title this weekend. We hope you do! Good luck. #TiptonPride #PublicSchoolProud #FFAweek
